Rome – Part I

Some places are a special – and some are even more special. Rome is one of those places. Everywhere you look, there is always something that to catch your eyes. A fascinating mix of new, old and older. The whole city is full of architecture and memories of an ancient world. Although the city of Rome becomes more and more modern, there are always memories of past times around you that could, if you look close enough, bring you back to those days… Here I will share some of them with you (and a few other pictures as well).
